    AHE Hard Rock tarp or WL Old Man Winter?

    I think I've narrowed my decision on my next tarp down to the AHE Hard Rock or the WL OMW. Then I keep looking at UGQ Winter Dream. Can you all give me some comparison on these tarps?

    I currently have an OES 4-season. What I don't like about it is when the doors are closed, there is still a gap in them bc of the sharp cat cut. Also with the doors closed, there is not enough room to hang my pack from my hammock suspension bc there is a
    drastic angle from top to ground. The pack kinda pokes out from the slit where the doors don't meet.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is for some reason it just seems for as big as the OES 4-season is, it doesn't seem like there is any room to move around under it.

    AHE Hard Rock tarp or WL Old Man Winter?

    I just purchased an olmw tarp and I must say for the size of the tarp it mighty light. I really haven't set up the tarp to see if the doors will fully close but I had the same issue with the oes 4-season with the tarp doors not closing fully.

    I was told, via email, that the hard rock is unavailable.

    Well, at least it helps narrow your choices. I've been having a serious look at the OMW with the 2 pole mod in anticipation of getting a BMBH. But then with 12ft RL and the pole mod, I'm getting closer to cuben prices.....

    I have one of the early OMW tarps. Very nice. Kept me nice and dry during a major rain storm couple years ago and I did not even have to close the doors
